Shut off the water to the machine.

Remove both Hot and Cold hoses from the machine.

Loot into the openings of the valve and check the filter screens.

Filter screens can also be located in the hose ends.

The screen can be pulled out with a small tool. Be careful not to gouge the screens so you can reuse them. DO NOT USE THE MACHINE WITHOUT THE SCREENS. Water can pick up small crunchy bits from anywhere from the city pump to and throughout the house and even a tiny bit can ruin an expensive washer valve.

Hi the pressure in boiler is very high and dripping out side its not the water valve intake been told its the heater exchanger


There should be a water pressure reducing valve in the make up water line. This valve or regulator should keep the boiler pressure at about 10- 12 pounds. It sounds like that valve is letting more pressure to the boiler than it should. There is also an expansion tank that works to keep the boiler pressure at 10 pounds. The rubber seal inside can go bad and the tank will fill with water.

Valve Pressure Reducing or Pressure Reducing Valve


dfef4ee.jpgThe pressure reducing valve on a boiler is the way that the water pressure in the boiler is controlled. The standard pressure for many hot water boilers is considered to be 12 PSI. To keep the boiler pressure at or near the 12 PSI mark a small valve is used for pressure reducing. Most domestic water systems run between 20 and 60 PSI, so the pressure must be reduced for the boiler.

This pressure reducing valve is installed in the pipe that goes from the domestic cold water to somewhere in the piping on the heating system, usually at or near the expansion tank. The valve is mostly maintenance free but will create some problems at times. Some of the things that can go wrong are:

  1. The valve seat can get dirt stuck under it causing water to leak by and increase the pressure in the boiler, causing the relief valve to release water periodically.
  2. The valve can become plugged with dirt causing the boiler to not have enough water pressure, which will cause circulation problems with the boiler pumps.
  3. The valve can leak causing a mess around the boiler area.

Replacement of the pressure reducing valve is not difficult if the installer strategically placed manual valves so that the reducing valve can be isolated from the rest of the system for replacement.
If the water pressure reducing valve fails in any way, it is usually best to just replace the whole valve rather than trying to repair or fix it. I have tried a number of times with only temporary results. These valves are not a high dollar item and the time it takes to fix them is not worth it.

Karcher k3.00 lack of power


Are you using the same water supply as before when you had good pressure? Some house water lines have pressure reducers to protect your pipes and appliances. This can restrict the water flow and reduce the pressure the machine develops. If the flow surges (good, then weak, then good etc) you are not getting enough water to the pump. Try a larger diameter garden hose (5/8"). If you know where your water line enters the house, try the hose bib closest to it. Often times it is at street pressure instead of (reduced) house pressure.

What is LF message


LF means a long fill was detected. This means that the washer sensor did not sense enough water coming into the unit in the first 8 minutes after starting the wash cycle.

There are several things that you can check. First, make sure that the incoming water pressure is good. You can try replacing the intake hoses and checking the filters on both sides (inside the washer and at the shut-off valves). (When you take the hoses off the shut-off valves, put a bucket under the outlets and check the flow rate.) Some intake hoses will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will significantly reduce the water flow. If the filters are clogged, you get a similar restricted flow.

Next, check that the end of the drain hose is not positioned below the fill level of the washer. This will cause the water to be suctioned out of the tub as fast as it fills.

If the water is flowing well, the intake valves or the water pressure sensor (which detects the change in the weight of the tub) could be bad or have a wiring harness problem.

I hope this helps.

White smoke out the tail pipe at a light 1996 camaro 3.8 liter


Could be a bad head or head gasket, but most likely the intake manifold gasket. This is a common problem with this engine. The coolant gets in the intake runner and is sucked into the cylinder. You might try running it a short distance without the radiator cap and see if this reduces the amount of smoke. Less pressure in the cooling system will push less water into the intake. Are you also losing coolant? Let us know if this helps. Robert

Snap-on spigot coupling won't stay connected


Sounds like too much water pressure or, more likely, the coupler has worn down. You can get a replacement at most hrdware stores.
